Our Easter Butterfly

Monday, April 25, 2011

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous Easter! We started our day attending Easter service at our church and it was wonderful! During the praise music we sang one of my favorite songs, Revelation Song, and I cried the whole time. What an awesome reminder of the love Christ has for us that he would lay down His life for our sins! After church we spent the afternoon at Todd's parents where we had lunch and some relaxation time. The kids enjoyed the egg hunt and the water gun fights!

When we returned home we were excited to see that one of our cocooned caterpillars had emerged as a butterfly! Ella was given a caterpillar kit for her birthday and over the last 2 weeks we have enjoyed watching them eat and grow. Last weekend over a period of 2-3 days each of the 5 caterpillars went into their cocoons. How awesome that the first one decided to emerge as a butterfly on Easter! What a perfect day to debut such an amazing transformation! It is so symbolic of the transformation that we as Christians undergo when we accept Christ in our life! He gives us a new life and we are completely changed! The old is gone and our new life with Christ begins! How cool is it that God gives us little reminders like this to show us how much he loves us!

Hope you have a great Monday! We will be gearing up for our beach vacay that starts next weekend!! Counting down the days!
